DIP: Triple Self and Triple Thinking MADRID

The workshop Triple Self and Triple Thinking uses the perspective of trinities to examine the transformation of humans, whose brain weight has doubled since the beginning of the thinking animal process, through their ability to create myths.   The human mind is a concrete structure that thinks about abstract eternity. This workshop is a presentation in which this structure, which we can see as the mind-body-spirit trilogy, examines evolutionary, anthropological, religious, emotional, sociological, technical, spiritual, scientific, digital and such subjects in rough outlines of the past, present and predicted future.   This workshop deals with emerging triads such as son-spirit-god, animal-sapiens-homo deus, reptile-limbic-cognitive, earth-machine-data, is to prepare the mind, heart, and soul for universal openness and freedom through whirling in DIP workshops. At the same time, by increasing physical, emotional and mental flexibility and endurance, it is possible to witness what is happening in today's fast life from a wider perspective.   This is a space where participants can challenge their limits through whirling, and stimulate their ability for the thrift of bodily energy.Through these abilities, they can reach their target movement within their own genre; spending less energy, and with a higher level of awareness. Whirling is not the main objective of this workshop. The greater goal is to improve one’s physical, emotional and mental awareness through whirling and the preceding exercises. It leads the participants to perceive and accept what is befalling throughout whirling, and reach an innovative way of moving by means of whirling.   The language of the workshop is English.

We’re excited to inform you that we are going on an Italy Tour in March 2024, and we can't wait to explore this beautiful country again! Our first destination will be the Cinema Teatro Comunale di Bomporto. You can read the details of the performance below.    Dervish Performance Bomporto ITALY   Dervish is a performance where Ziya Azazi's first two works, Azab and Dervish in Progress, are exhibited together. It is a work in which the four levels of Sufism are the subject.

Ultimately, sitting cross-legged also symbolises the preparation of oneself for ingenuity.     Dervish in Progress is a solo that deals with the "ingenuity" of the last stage of life, which is also the subject of Sufism that deals with the individual's comprehension at this level. This performance is Ziya Azazi's first solo in his individual art career as a result of 5 years of research on whirling.

Starting May 2nd, the retreat offers an integration of three specialized master classes:   Dervish Tango: A fusion of whirling & partner dances, emphasizing fluidity and grace, to experience dualities such as responsibility-surrendering, holding-dropping, accepting-rejecting, and taking-giving, masculinity-femininity in partnering. Exploring the Skirts: This class delves into the symbolic and practical aspects of using skirts in DIP, enhancing the visual and spiritual experience. But also to incorporate the flow and movement of the multiple skirt whirling techniques and learn how to use the skirt as an instrument, partner, extension, or mirror of the body/self. Performing DIP: Focuses on the performance aspect, combining technique with expressive storytelling, and how to captivate the audience with mesmerizing performances. The class covers various staging aspects, and aims to enhance creativity, emotional awareness, and performance skills.   Beginners and those looking to refresh their knowledge will be given basic information on the first 2 days. From May 2nd, three master classes will be addressed separately, but also will be blended together.
